Description

There is no better way to see the stunning sites of East Africa than on a 10-day Kilimanjaro and safari package!

Rising 5,895 meters  (19,341 feet) above the savanna and Rift Valley of Tanzania,  Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak on the whole continent.

The easiest of the world’s Seven Summit can be climbed in less than one week with no previous mountaineering experience. However, we will gain altitude quickly and have several days of steep hikes, so participants will need to be in good shape.

The adventure begins shortly after we meet at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to Moshi. The following day, we set out to Kilimanjaro National Park and the trekking begins.

Over the course of the next four days, we will hike through dense rainforest, open heath and rugged scree landscapes en route to the summit.

On the fifth day of the trip, we ascent to Uhuru Peak, the highest on the massif, and watch the sunrise up over world below. This will truly be an unforgettable moment in your life.

After descending from the mountain, the safari part of the trip begins. Over the course of two days, we will visit Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater – the eight wonder of the natural world.

In both of these locales, we will have plenty of chances to see all of East Africa’s most iconic and rare wildlife, including black rhinos and maybe even the elusive leopard.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this once-in-a-lifetime 10-day Kilimanjaro and safari package in extraordinary East Africa!

If you like the look of this trip, but want to skip the safari, then we think you may also enjoy our 5-day climb on Mount Kilimanjaro via the Marangu route!
